Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned was refused disability allowance (DA) on 4 July 2019. Their application, based upon all the evidence submitted, was refused on medical grounds as it was not found that this lady was substantially restricted in taking up employment.

She was notified of this decision which includes her right to a review of this decision or to appeal it to the independent Social Welfare Appeals Office.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
